The National Maritime Museum of Ireland

East Ireland | County Dublin

The National Maritime Museum of Ireland, is housed in a former Mariners Church. Dating from 1837, this was built to serve the seafaring community of the bustling harbour of Kingstown, known today as Dún Laoghaire - or even "Dublin's Riviera". The museum first opened its doors in 1974, and has since been managed by the Maritime Institute of Ireland which was founded in 1941 by Col. Tony Lawlor. Following substantial grant aid from the Taoiseach's Office through the Office of Public Works the museum building was extensively refurbished and re-opened to the public in April. 2012. It is the primary collection of materials relating to Ireland's colourful maritime heritage, from ancient times through the golden age of steam and sail, right up to the present day.
